Pre-Loving

Today... the day before the event...
of turning another year older...
It was all about the Pre-Loving...Goodness...


A nice batch of banana muffins
on a rather unusual "goldfish" tablecloth...
I found this last week and was more than happy I did...


And then I popped in the car...child free
and had a lovely stroll
around the second hand shop and Vinnies...
I found the most amazing little stool...above...
and I'm sure it will make it's presence known
in many a photo shoot...
Well like now...

Some nice little dollies...


And a great array of pillowcases and sheets...
and the most gorgeous curtains below...
which there are two of and I'm thinking they will look really
nice made up into pillows or
I just might wait and see if they can be used in "the caravan"
(still dreaming)
but dreams do come true sometimes...


I was most happy
with my birthday haul...
and I would much rather a lovely thrifting day like today than
anything flashy or expensive...
Tomorrow I will get the kids to help me make a birthday cake...
The more sickly the better...
Then sit by the fire and read a few golden books to "Little Miss"
and watch her create a drawing for my birthday...
Help "My Shadow" with his movie script,
a budding director in the making...
And scroll though a few pages on e-bay and etsy...
Now that sounds like a perfect day to me...
I hope if your birthday is coming up you are as lucky as me...
